Paul Santiago Posted December 29, 2011 Share Posted December 29, 2011 A buddy brought me a shotgun to help him identify. It belonged to his father at the least and was in his 95 y/o mothers attic. Does anyone know what it might be or know of any resources to ID it? I don't know shotguns but he knows even less. Here's what I can describe. Blackpowder. NO MARKINGS anywhere I could find. Side by side Double trigger Exposed hammers. Has corroded nipples. The barrels appear to be a twist. Has two lugs/tabs on each side of the foregrip. He also brought a .22 rifle that we determined was a Mossberg model 51M. Since the rifle had a .22 blank stuck in the chamber that he was unaware of, I suggested he take the shotgun to a local smith/gunshop to help with identification and to see it was LOADED. I was able to get the .22 unloaded and made safe. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
